My Students

My students come from a predominantly low socioeconomic community in a school where 100% of the students receive free breakfast, free lunch and free early supper.

Help me give my students the Science Kit- The Outbreak Alert: Engineering a Pandemic Response.

The school offers the most stable, safe, and comfortable environment for my students to gain knowledge through learning.

As 21st century learners, my students show an enthusiasm for new innovative ways of learning. A science kit will allow my students to become scientists and researchers at the same time. This kit will allow my students to learn about contagious diseases and will also research a new antivirus to combat the disease. This project will open up their minds to new fascinating ideas for the future.

My Project

The Outbreak Alert: Engineering a Pandemic Response Science STEM kit will allow them to learn about the Science and Health standards. This kit will allow exploration time and research in preparing for outbreaks of contagious diseases.

This kit will allow ample time to become engineers in designing an antivirus to combat disease.

Science is one subject my students absolutely love and their full attention will be acquired if this kit comes to their possession.

Dear donor please make this project a reality for my eager 3rd grade students. I can assure you that they will place their full efforts in learning science.
